On a birch tree which is unusual, it's usually on a stump or from buried roots:

Not uncommon in the south but seems to be earlier than the other species in the genus so possibly under-recorded.

I've never seen this in the South West; in fact I've not come across anywhere!

Curious. It is quite common in the New Forest and Windsor Park, always with birch in my experience. Oddly enough, according to the Checklist of the British & Irish Basidiomycota, it is rarely found with Betula, usually quercus!!!!!

I come across it reasonably regularly in Kent.
